Strategic“What about…?”, “Chose”, and “Engage”. This is theme Paul employs in every decision. From his unique perspective he surveys the fields, plays out scenarios and engages models. Where confusion and disorder abound he develops patterns and calculates paths around the blind corners of decisions. Armed with the vision he leads others safely along the path of order and safety through the minefields and obstacles. As you work with Paul in planning sessions give him the opportunity to visualize the field. Allow Paul to play out the scenarios before asking him what to expect. It is not magical to watch him as he logically concludes potentials unseen by others.
Futuristic“What if…” or “I wonder what would…”are the typical phrases used as Paul considers the untapped possibilities around him. Where there exists even a remote possibility of improvements in productivity he finds solutions that expand our horizons. Paul paints portraits for potentials of the future which inspire others and leads organizations to greatness. He doesn’t discover the future he creates it and leads others to the horizons beyond view. As you share your goals he considers them and begins turning the gears of action to make them attainable.
InputPaul’s mind is a sponge. From the vantage point where he positions himself he collects and processes information. As he experiences life the results are ordered into relational structures that build upon each other. The rich tapestry that is Paul’s life benefits his professional and personal endeavors making him uniquely qualified in today’s Knowledge Age. Once you allow him to collect and process information look for opportunities to leverage his relational knowledge. The richer the set of experiences the better prepared he will be to retrieve and share.
AnalyticalThe proof may be in the pudding but Paul wants to know that his decisions are sound. Instead of taking another’s word he trusts and verifies. Information is key to any decision and having the correct amounts and sources of information help him discern logical paths from wishful thinking. Instinctively he seeks patterns in confusion and formulates those paths when armed with accurate information. Innately able to collect information he naturally processes conclusions from these experiences. Your ability to identify key factors will enhance the time and relevance of the solutions Paul develops.
ResponsibilityThe Curator of Solutions is a title that aptly applies to Paul. His projects, assignments and passions are his duty until they mature to completion. Rationalizations, excuses and apologies are no replacement for doing things right. His work ethic demands that success is the only allowable alternative. Not only does he volunteers for more responsibility but thrives on effectively dealing with a full plate. As you give Paul additional commitments pair him with a team of likeminded people and stand back to be amazed.
